No trip to France is complete without sampling at least a few
dozen of one of the most popular sweets around. Not quite a cookie but not a candy either, macarons are about to become your new favorite sweet treat. These trendy little circles have graced the pages of bridal magazines, made cameos in shows like Gossip Girl and have even made their way to New York’s Upper East Side. Flavors like pistachio, rose, caramel, vanilla and a host of others will have you falling in love with France one bite at a time — and I have to say that I’m happy to live in France for maybe that reason alone. After just one taste, I guarantee that these expertly flavored treats will have you coming back for more.
If you’ve ever been to France, you’re probably familiar with the flashing green French pharmacy signs, which are just as prevalent as Starbucks shops in New York. Throughout France, these neon signs indicate the location of a pharmacy, but tourists take note — these pharmacies are anything but boring!
